Scoring question

Postby stugotsII » Wed Aug 22, 2007 2:45 pm

I've been wondering someing about scoring for quit some time:

Quarterback scoring makes no sense to me. Normally a QB will get 1 pt for every 25 yards passing and 4 points for every TD thrown, where a RB/WR gets 1 pt for every 10 yards and 6 points for a TD.

Why?

That scoring system is often called a P1 system. Some could possibly consider it
the standard format. I consider rushing for a 100+ yds getting HIT EVERY time you
touch the ball a little tougher than a QB tossing it. Not suggesting ANY of it is easy just that
pounding the rock is harder. There also are scoring systems that are HP (High Performance)
where you get 1 for for every 10 whether it be passing, receiving, or rushing; and all
Offensive TD's are 6.
I've also played in Leagues where there are BONUSES , yes we are entering
HIGH ( over 200 ) weekly points. Example would be the QB gets +10 points for
over 300 yds passing and another +10 if throws for more than 4 TDs. The RB would get
+5 for over 100 yds., +10 for over 150 and +25 for over 200 yards.

If you are asking why the scoring is different then...

A Pretty Good QB will throw 3500-4000 yds and score 20+ TD's and maybe throw 13 INTs. If you add up his total points using that scoring system (and including -2 pts for INTs) it comes out to 194 to 214 pts total.

A pretty good RB will put up 1200 yds and score about 10 TD's. Adding it all up using that scoring it comes out to 180pts.

This evens out the playing field, making it desirable to have all-around good players. If they set the scoring for QBs to be the same as RBs, then it would be completely obvious that the person with the best QB will most likely win.

Why even out the playing field?

Because then it would all be about 'Whoever can get the best QB' or 'RB' is for sure going to win. Or really whoever has 1st pick, thats boring. By having an all-around good team you have more chances to dominate.

The purpose is so that no position is significantly more valuable than any other. As these guys said, a QB can easily get 2-3 TDs in one game, where if a RB gets 1 TD thats a very good game. Also, a QB can get as many as 300-400 yds in a game, where 100 yds is a very good game for a RB. Most leagues make passing yds worth around half as much as rushing or receiving yds.
